Born in 1985 the Argentine Association of Computational Mechanics celebrates 30 years of activity.

Following the First Symposium on Numerical Methods in Continuum Mechanics, in Buenos Aires, 1977, and the First and Second National Meeting of Researchers and Users of the FEM (ENIEF), in Bariloche, 1983 and 1984, the Argentine Association of Computational Mechanics was created in 1985 when the First Argentine Congress on Computational Mechanics (MECOM) was held in Santa Fe-Paraná, cities. Sergio Idelsohn was elected as its first president conducting it through many years and contributing greatly to its international insertion.

AMCA was one of the first national associations integrating the IACM. It has participated in the organization of several international congress, such as the IV WCCM of the IACM in 1998; and the Fourth PACAM (Pan American Congress of Applied Mechanics) in 1995; several editions of the CILAMCE (Iberian Latin American Congress of Computational Methods in Engineering); and recently the First Pan-American Congress on Computational Mechanics, PANACM 2015.

In the frame of the 30 Anniversary of AMCA a Workshop on Future Trends In Computational Mechanics was held in Santa Fe, Argentina, November 16-17, 2015.
